Television detective shows of the 1970s: credits, storylines, and episode guides for 109 series
"One more thing..., " Columbo would say to the murderer during the course of his rumpled investigation, and the killer would perhaps feel the noose tightening. The show of the same name was one of the most popular detective series appearing on television in the 1970s, a decade that offered a wider variety of such shows than any other time. (Series beginning in the 1960s or ending in the 1980s that had episodes broadcast in the 1970s are also included in full.) Four subgenres are studied: cops, private detectives, lawyers, and sleuths. Each entry is arranged alphabetically and follows the same format: cast and credits, brief remarks about the style, and an episode guide (episode titles, original telecast dates, guest casts and brief plot synopses). Comprehensive index.
